The Tedeschi Family Winery is a very small, family-owned winery producing fewer than 2,000 cases a year in the style of the “old-world.” Their flagship wine is made from the small block Stargazer Vineyard dry-farmed Merlot. Emil Tedeschi’s grandparents settled in Calistoga in 1919, emigrating from Pisa, Italy. Their son, Eugene acquired the property that currently houses the winery and family home in 1951, where he planted the family’s first grapevines among established fruit trees. In 1991, Emil, Eugene’s son returned as steward after cofounding one of Hawaii’s most successful wineries: Tedeschi Vineyards – Maui. The Calistoga winery has become the passion and single focus of Emil’s two sons Emilio and Mario. “Making wines our grandparents would be proud of is what we are aiming for. Traditionally made, old-world wines that can be enjoyed with a variety of foods, great company, and from your wine cellar for many years”, says Mario Tedeschi, Winemaker.
Together, with Emilio acting as General Manager and winemakers Mario Tedeschi and David Sundberg making the wine, they have sought out and committed to handcrafting old-world style wines from several small and neighboring vineyards to produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, Primitivo, Malbec, Tempranillo, Viognier, Rosé of Gamay, and a Late Harvest wine of Sauvignon Blanc. Each of the vineyards are specially selected and hand-tended.
Tedeschi Family Winery is located at 2779 Grant Street, Calistoga, CA 94515, just a half a mile south of Old Faithful Geyser. Visitors are invited to the winery daily by appointment from 10:30 to 5 for tasting. There is no commercial signage, so look for the address (2779 Grant St) and a big barrel to enjoy the winery’s private setting & picnic area!
